Горды прамовы і дзякуй Богу

ўвядзенне

Я люблю дзяцей. One of the reasons I love kids is because they show us ourselves. They’re like little mirrors. Дазвольце мне сказаць вам, што я маю на ўвазе. Дзеці маюць амаль усе з тых жа самых праблем, якія мы маем, але гэтыя праблемы проста нашмат больш відавочным, таму што яны не ведаюць, як схаваць іх яшчэ. Гэта сапраўды ясна, калі дзеці робяць рэчы, яны не павінны рабіць.

Вы калі-небудзь бачылі нешта дзіцем сэнсарны яны не павінны чапаць? They’ll look around to see if you’re looking. Іх не хвалюе, калі іншы дзіця глядзіць; яны проста не хочуць дарослыя ці бацькі, каб убачыць. Чаму яны гэта робяць, хоць? Because they know you’re in charge, і яны не хочуць, каб вы, каб даведацца, таму што яны ведаюць, што ты той, які яны павінны адказаць.

Adults are the same way. Often we’re OK with doing things we’re not supposed to do, да таго часу, як чалавек, мы павінны адказаць не пазнаць. Вы рады паскорыць, пакуль не ўбачыце паліцэйскіх наперад. Можа быць, мы рады пакінуць працу рана да таго часу, як наш бос не пазнае. Maybe some of us cheat on tests as long as the professor doesn’t catch us. We don’t usually care if people know we’re doing something wrong, калі гэта не ўлада, мы павінны адказаць.

ў 1 Самуіл 2, Hannah prays in response to the birth of her son Samuel. And in this prayer, яна папярэджвае іншых не здзяйсняць адзін канкрэтны грэх, таму што іх суддзя назірае. Turn са мной 1 Самуэль кіраўнік 2, верш 3.

Ня працягвайце казаць так горда альбо хай ваш рот казаць такое пыху, бо Гасподзь ёсьць Бог, які ведае,, і ягоныя ўчынкі ўзважаныя.
(1 Самуіл 2:3)

У гэтым тэксце, Ханна перасцерагае нас ад ганарлівай прамовы, because God will find out and He’ll hold us accountable for it. Вось што я думаю, што галоўны сэнс гэтага верша: If you talk proudly, вам давядзецца адказваць перад Богам за яго.

We may be tempted to think our prideful words don’t matter much. But if you think your prideful words don’t matter, I’m afraid for you. They should matter to you, таму што яны важныя для Бога, and He’s the One you have to answer to. We won’t finally answer to our parents, або нашы сябры, або нашы пастыры, але да Бога.

Маючы гэта на ўвазе, Я хачу, каб задаць некалькі пытанняў, каб лепш зразумець тэкст.

пытанне 1: Што гэта значыць для размовы Ганарліва?

Гэта значыць выкарыстоўваць вашыя словы, каб ўзвялічыць сябе.

фон

Now typically we would think of self-exalting words as just simply bragging about how amazing we are, але ёсць шмат спосабаў, каб гаварыць з гонарам. І я думаю, што адзін са спосабаў, якімі Ханна мае на ўвазе тое, што мы бачым у главе 1.

Hannah was the wife of a man named Elkanah. She wasn’t his only wife though. У яго была яшчэ адна жонка, чыё імя было Фэнаны. Фэнаны былі дзеці, але Ганна была бясплодная. І Фэнаны бы ў асноўным дражніць Ханна пра гэта. І з-за яе бясплоднасць і гэтая насмешку Ханна засмуціўся, і яна будзе плакаць.

Я думаю, што Фэнаны з'яўляецца прыкладам ганарлівай прамовы Ханна папярэджвае нас супраць. Фэнаны не проста паказвае на той факт, што ў яе дзяцей. Яна не проста спрабавала нагадаць Ханну фактаў. She was taunting her, boasting over her, tormenting her.

That just sounds like she’s being mean. How is it talking proudly? Well it seems like Peninnah was using this as a way to assert herself over Hannah. It seems like she was assuming that somehow her bearing of children made her better than Hannah, якая не адпавядае рэчаіснасці. Scripture clearly says that children are a gift from the Lord. Peninnah was talking proudly, і ёй давядзецца адказваць перад Богам за яго.

Шляху We Talk Ганарліва

Ці можам мы прызнаць гэта ці не, we all talk proudly and speak with arrogance in a variety of ways:

1. One obvious way is bragging about our accomplishments. Sometimes we can’t wait to tell others about what we have and what we’ve accomplished. Але мы не хвалячы Бога за яго; the goal is making ourselves look better. I’ve caught myself doing this on many occasions. Можа быць, якія ўпадаюць старога сябра, і яны пытаюць мяне, што я рабіў. Я мог бы сказаць, паляпванне, але я палічыў за лепшае б паказаць на ўзнагароды або іншыя дасягненні.

2. Ці як пра рэчы, мы гаворым пра іншых? Sometimes we slander others. Мы хочам, каб фарбаваць іх у дрэнным святле, так што мы будзем добра выглядаць. Maybe at work we point out that a particular co-worker is pretty lazy, так што людзі заўважаць розніцу паміж вамі. Ці, можа быць, замест таго каб быць міласэрны з іншымі, we’re self-righteous. We stand as a judge over them, таму што гэта прымушае нас адчуваць сябе лепш пра нашых духоўных дасягненняў. Гэта значыць ганарлівая гаворка.

3. Or sometimes even when we say good things. Maybe it’s a testimony on a Sunday night. It could be a gripping story about God’s work in a friend’s life, but your motives could be your glory instead of God’s. Or letting someone know you’ve been praying for them. Or teaching a Sunday School class. Even good things can be proud speech if your goal is exalting yourself.

Некаторыя з гэтых прыкладаў, больш відавочныя, чым іншыя. Такім чынам, як вы ведаеце, калі гэта? Што адрознівае гордую маўленне ад канстатую факты? Talking proudly is when you don’t acknowledge God as the One who’s sovereign and deserving of glory, у вашым сэрцы або самі словы. І калі мы робім гэта, мы прымаем, што слава належыць Богу.

Вашыя словы могуць прызнаваць Бога, але як наконт вашага сэрца? Other people may not be able to tell the difference, but Hannah reminds us that the Lord is a God who knows. І калі мы выкарыстоўваем нашы словы, каб ўзвялічыць сябе, мы павінны адказаць Яму за гэта.

У тэксце Ханна кажа нам не гаварыць з гонарам, а потым яна кажа нам, чаму: таму што Гасподзь ёсьць Бог, які ведае і важыць справы.

пытанне 2: Чаму мы павінны адказаць Богу за Proud прамовы?

Таму што гэта напад на Яго славы.

Калі толькі адзін з гэтых двух апошніх фраз было праўдай, it would change a lot. If God knew, але не быў суддзёй, or if God was the judge but didn’t know. But the perfectly just Judge is also the all-knowing God. Мала таго, што Бог даведацца,, ён слухае. God is at all times tuned in to every conversation that’s happening. Almost like He has an infinite amount of security cameras placed in every square foot of the earth. ён ведае. І калі мы атакуючы Яго славу з ганарлівай прамовай, Ён будзе ведаць,.

рабуюць Бог

Калі б я павінен быў пайсці на ваш банкаўскі рахунак, і бяруць грошы і прымяніць яго на мой рахунак, што крадзеж? Of course it is. Я бяру тое, што належыць вам, і ужываючы яго да сябе. Я не магу даць сабе які-небудзь з вашых грошай, не прымаючы яго ад вас. І гэта няправільна, таму што яно належыць вам.

Калі людзі спрабуюць даць сабе славу, they rob God of His. You cannot ascribe to yourself praise and glory, ня крадзь ад Бога. Pride is an attack on God’s glory. чаму? Because an overestimation of self comes from an underestimation of God. Дазвольце мне сказаць, што зноў: пераацэнка сябе зыходзіць ад недаацэнкі Бога. І, як мы бачым у 1 Самуіл 1, гэта недаацэнка Бога, таксама прыводзіць да недаацэнцы іншых. Так думаць занадта высока пра сябе зыходзіць ад мыслення занадта пакорлівы Бога, і прыводзіць да думкі занадта пакорлівы іншых.

Фэнаны памыліўся. Яна пераацэньваць сябе, паставіўшы сябе на трон Суверэннага, as if she opened her own womb. And we’re often guilty of the same. Мы лічым, што мы тыя, хто павінен атрымаць крэдыт для гэтага прасоўвання, або тыя, добра выхаваныя дзеці, або наша фінансавае становішча. ды, Бог ўзнагародзіць нашу цяжкую працу, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. God’s will is the real deciding factor in every situation. Важна, нарэшце, не нашая сіла, наша мудрасць, ці нават наша вернасць.

гордыя прамовы

So pride is wrong. All of us have some pride in our hearts that we must fight. Калі вы думаеце, у вашым сэрцы, што вы заслужылі славу, that itself is a sin. But prideful speech is taking it to another level. How could we, як грахоўныя чалавечыя істоты, маюць нахабства, не толькі думаць, што мы вартыя славы Божай, але на самой справе прадставіць яго такім чынам да іншых? To try to convince others to give us the glory that belongs to God alone. Talking proudly is like not only robbing someone, але распавядаць пра гэта ўсім і падахвочваючы іх рабіць тое ж самае.

адзінае, God doesn’t need video footage to know you’re guilty. God will not tolerate human beings trying to rob Him of His glory and encouraging others to do the same. З-за чаго Ханна кажа, што мы не павінны рабіць гэта.

Гордыя прамовы выбраць барацьбу з Богам, which is why it’s inconsistent with the life of a believer. Як мы чулі сёння раніцай, "Бог ганарлівым пярэчыць, але дае мілату пакорным ".

справы Ўзважаны

Калі мы не ў Хрысце, нашы гордыя словы, will be yet another reason for God to punish us. Our evil deeds will continue to help the overwhelming case against us. If you’re not in Christ, there is nothing more terrifying than an all-knowing Judge. So if you’re here tonight and you don’t Jesus, калі ласка, даведацца Яго. Turn ад свайго граху, and throw yourself on His mercy. He was incredibly humble—humble enough to die so that sinners like you and me can live. Ён падняўся з магілы з усёй сілай, і заклікае людзей ісці за Ім. Мы хацелі б пагаварыць з вамі больш аб тым, што пасля.

Але як хрысціяне, што гэта значыць для нашых спраў, каб быць ўзважаныя? Every believer in this room will have to answer to God for every proud word they speak, but our judgment will be different. Christ has already taken our sins on the cross. But this warning should still impact the way we live. Калі мы стаім перад Богам, our deeds will either testify to the fact that we’ve trusted in Christ or that we were too proud to trust in Christ alone.

таксама, we want to please the Father. Of course He’s pleased with us in Christ, але мы хочам, каб Ён быў задаволены нашымі добрымі справамі, якія зыходзяць з веры ў Хрыста. Мы хочам, каб дагадзіць нашым тым, хто любіць Бога.

Мы не павінны дапускаць пагардлівых слоў, каб прыйсці з нашых вуснаў. І хоць нам прыйдзецца адказваць перад Богам для нашай гордай прамовы, мы павінны славіць Бога, што нашы грахі пакрытыя ў Хрысце.

Так што, калі мы хочам, каб Бог быў праслаўлены нашай мове, як мы змагацца з гэтым напышлівым размова?

пытанне 3: Як мы змагаемся Горды прамовы?

Мы робім гэта радасці ў Богу.

Мы павінны сачыць за сваёй прамовай, but that’s not enough. It’s like telling someone with a cold the solution is just to hold their sneeze in. няма, хвароба з'яўляецца тое, што павінна быць атакаваныя.

The proud heart rejoices in itself. But the humble heart rejoices in God. Паглядзіце на першыя словы малітвы Ганны ў вершах 1: “My heart rejoices in the Lord.” Hannah shows us the proper response to the Lord’s blessing. Не толькі радавацца, што даў Гасподзь, але Сам Падацелю. Наш адказ мог бы ганарыцца, але замест гэтага ён павінен зрабіць у нас пакоры, таму што мы атрымліваем падарунак ад Бога

God gives and takes away. God distributes and withholds. Але ён робіць усё гэта для нашага дабра і славы Яго. We falter when we begin to depend on those things too much. Rejoicing in God kills both pride and hopelessness.

Як ты радавацца ў Богу? Do what it takes to remind yourself who’s behind everything. Praise God when you receive that check. Вось чаму мы дзякуем Богу перад нашай ежы. Remembering that it’s arrogant to assume our plans will always go forth. Скажы Госпаду заўгодна. Give glory to God when others congratulate you on your accomplishments. Ня на хвіліну дазвольце вашаму сэрцу ўзяць крэдыт. Сачы ганарыстасці гаворка. Знайсці карані гонару ў вашым сэрцы.

выснову

Кожны з нас была дадзеная дзіўная магчымасць з кожным словам мы гаворым. Мы атрымліваем, каб выкарыстоўваць нашы словы, каб праславіць Бога, які стварыў нас. Мы атрымліваем, каб выкарыстоўваць нашы словы, каб дапамагчы іншым убачыць Бога за слаўнага Госпада, што Ён.

So my encouragement is not to use your words to exalt yourself. замест, выкарыстоўваць іх, каб рабіць тое, што вы былі створаны, каб рабіць-ўзьнесьці славу Богу. Гэта ўсё належыць Яму ўсё роўна.

давайце маліцца.

    This was a wonderful read. Even in our humility, we need to be careful that we are not doing to make men see that we are humble, which in itself is prideful.
    It explains why the Greek philosophers did not believe that humility was a virtue because many can fake it.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I don’t mean to throw Trip under the bus or have any intention in starting a debate online. I only ask for clarification. I am a recent graduate looking for a job. How do we not speak proudly in a job interview where we have to in some way be comfortable about explaining the good achievements to possible employers?

    • Trip Leeадказаць

      Hey Jason
      You’re not throwing me under the bus bro! I think that’s a great question. As I said above, proud speech is when you use your words to exalt yourself. It’s when you refuse to acknowledge God as Sovereign and deserving of the glory.

      You can explain your achievements and convince someone you’d do a good job without robbing God of His glory (after all, our devotion to Him should lead us to work with excellence). You don’t have to sayto God be the gloryafter every sentence, but you should do it all with a humble posture recognizing God as the giver of all good gifts. There’s a big difference between humbly pointing to your competence or arrogantly boasting. Make sense?

      • Jesseадказаць

        How, in a culture that frowns upon Christian values being expressed, are we suppose to get, and hold an honest paying job, without our pride getting the best of us? I’m also not trying to throw you under the bus and find faults, but as a teenager who wants desperately to live anunashamed lifestyleand spread the gospel in everything they do, I also need a job. I think the problem is not being able to express our self at a workplace without the fear of being fired.

    Jason,
    Like he said, speaking proudly isn’t just stating facts. It’s seeking to exalt yourself instead of God. You can convince someone you’d do a good job, without robbing God of the glory he deserves for your skill and excellent work

    I am having a hard time with this quote: “Калі вы думаеце, у вашым сэрцы, што вы заслужылі славу, that itself is a sin.When I do something excellently, I desire a pat on the back, a word of encouragement, or some indication that my work is received as excellent. We praise athletes and sports teams tirelessly, and our entire world operates on awards and platforms that honor excellence. So how do I practically ‘deadenthis desire of mine when, honestly, I don’t want to? I guess just by, in our hearts, acknowledging that our excellence and the work of our hands comes from Him, and attributing all accolades we receive to Him.

    I just want to take this opportunity to thank you (Trip Lee) for letting God use you to glorify him. Me and my wife really enjoy your music. Our favorite song of course isGood Thing”. I read that you discontinued making music to further pursue your ministry, is this true? We need more rappers like you bro.

    Trip I agree with most of everything you mentioned in this blog regarding the value of our words except the statement you made thatGod gives and takes away and he distributes and withholds”. God is 100% good! There is not an ounce of bad in him to try to do harm or take anything away from us. Satan steals (takes/withholds), kills, and destroys. We as believers (or non-believers) do it to ourselves by disobeying (or being ignorant of) the spiritual standard God has already set on the earth. God hates pride primarily because it causes a blockage to receive the full goodness he so dearly wants us to have which can give Satan (and his forces) legal right to come in and capitalize on our prideful ways. This is not hate speech or trying to talk down to you but an open dialogue which I believe is the benefit of a blog.

    • Trip Leeадказаць

      Hey JB
      Thanks for reading! And for your encouraging words. I agree with you that God is 100% good. There’s no doubt about that. But that doesn’t mean He doesn’t take away. What about Job 1:21? Some of what I said above was an exact quotation from that verse. “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.”

      So God does take away, and He’s still good. The beautiful thing is, God uses even bad things for good in the lives of His people. рымляне 8:28 is a good example of this. I may write a whole post on this so I can make it more clear. Thanks again for reading!

    Jesse,
    As Trip mentioned, God knows all. Whether you give God glory out loud or take credit for your accomplishments out loud, God knows who your heart is giving glory to. Speaking to God’s glory aloud can also be pride speech if your heart is not truly giving glory to God. When we constantly speak of God’s glory around nonbelievers, we are like Peninnah and the nonbelievers are like Hannah. As Christians we have a tendency to feel threatened when we cannot openly praise God. Among nonbelievers we are like Penenniah with a spiritual blessing instead of children and the nonbelievers are Hannah that are left without such blessings as Hannah was without children. What we feel is praise to God, is actually boasting of our blessings. We must be ready to give praise to God at all times but we must not forget about the lost souls who choose not be with Him. You can take recognition of your accomplishments and even take responsibility without taking glory away from God. You received those blessings because you chose to walk His path. Give God glory in your heart, думкі, and prayers. Your words are just that, words. Never lie either. If an interviewer were to ask how you’ve done the things you’ve done, use the word faith. Faith is your choice, by your choice God has chosen to bless you, by giving glory to god for those blessings He will continue to do so. On another note, if you are struggling to find work try to reach out to God even more.

    This is a message I definitely needed to hear. I find myself battling with self-righteousness even on Facebook posts that are about God. I guess I need to look deep into my motives for everything I do. My brothers and sisters in Christ, if y’all would, pray for me!

    thanks so much for sharing your messages. i’m 14 and my family doesn’t go to church so i really need this and other Christian resources and stuff to help me figure out what’s what about faith if that makes any sense so thank you for sharing its really helpful and encouraging.

    Dig that Trip. Appreciate the feedback bro but unfortunately we’ll have to agree to disagree on this one. Lol.. There is a verse in Job that statesGod gives and he takes awaybut it was the words of Job not God. Job was righteous and blameless in the sight of the Lord but the moment he spoke those words it came from an ignorant point of view of how he perceived God operated. Reading through the rest of Job (specifically chapters 38-41) God speaks to Job about how ignorant he has spoken of him and asks him questions regarding his assumptions. In Job 42:3 (NIRV) Job replied to God and said: “You asked me, ‘Who do you think you are to disagree with my plans? You do not know what you are talking about.I spoke about things I didn’t completely understand. I talked about things that were too wonderful for me to know.Then in the 6th verse Job said: “So I hate myself. I’m really sorry for what I said about you. That’s why I’m sitting in dust and ashes.After he repented that’s when things started to go real well for him again. God wanted him to see he didn’t take away all his stuff (it was Satan) and it was the fear Job displayed in the beginning of the book that allowed Satan access to enter his life. Trip I don’t want to make a show of our conversation on the ‘comment sectionso if you see necessary just contact my email for reply. I admire your talent and your heart to serve God man. Later
